The Hungry Jack’s NBL will stage its biggest event ever, the inaugural NBL Cup, in Melbourne from February 20.

The NBL Cup will be a month-long extravaganza of basketball consisting of 36 games and featuring all nine NBL teams at John Cain Arena and the State Basketball Centre.

All game days are double-headers, so you instantly get two games for the price of one. That’s double the basketball, for the price of a one game!

Tickets $10*

On sale via Ticketek

*General Admission only. Plus $5.95 Ticketek handling fee per transaction.
